Michael’s birthday party coincided with the Thanksgiving holiday, so we were able to be a part of it! Holly went all out with a Froggy/Swamp Prince Theme. The party was at a great park near their house. The weather was perfect – cool and sunny. There was yummy food and fun games, and lots of friends and family came out to party with Prince Michael!
Sweet boy was a little sleepy at first – but he quickly warmed up to the festivities!
Holly carried the theme to the food. She made a bait bucket filled with “dirt” and worms.
There was also “Gator Corn” & “Gator Tails”.
Holly made froggy cupcakes! I think they were awesome ~ they made me giggle each time I looked at the crazy little eyes. Holly’s dad was giving her a hard time & saying they looked like frogs that had been run over, but what does he know? :)
If you don’t smile when you look at these cupcakes, then there’s something wrong with you! Hee hee.
After we munched on the yummy food, it was time for games. First, the kids had a froggy race.
On your mark, get set…
Gracie was catching some serious air… Noah was having a tough time moving past the starting line.
The kids also played “Pin the Tail on the Alligator”.
After games, it was time to sing to the birthday boy and give him his turtle smash cake that his mommy made just for him!
Holly’s friend made a cute banner for Michael’s high chair.
We had to pretend to light the candle ‘cause it was a little too windy.
We all sang and then it was time for the Prince to go to town.
Hold on - Pre-icing Family Photo Op!
Michael made sure the smash cake lived up to its potential!
Paw Paw helped Noah to get in on some green icing action, too.
Once his belly was full, little man opened his presents (with some help from his Mom & brother & Gracie.)
I offered to make Michael’s onesie for the party and Holly requested a camo bow tie.
We had a little photo shoot after the party. Michael was hopped up on sugar and hamming it up!
We had the best time celebrating this little guy!
He is the CUTEST!
Happy Birthday, Michael!
Love, Aunt Gabi, Uncle Brian, Ben, Grace & Noah
